✨✧ VariousLe Beat Bespoke Vol 1– 18 Tailor Made Cuts Compiled By Rob Bailey ... LP
Discotheque (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A funky mod party throughout – and a wicked package of grooves we would have never tracked down on our own! The folks at London's New Untouchables have selected 18 of their favorite fuzzed-out 60s numbers for this set – a genre-busting batch of tracks that swings together mod jazz, sunshine pop, 60s R&B, French funk, British beat, and a host of other styles – all in the endless pursuit of a tripped-out 60s groove! The package is as wonderful as you might hope – and comes complete with some nice notes on the well-chosen batch of trippy tracks. Titles include "Nowhere To Run" by Les Lionceaux, "You'd Better Be Going Now" by Zoot, "Hard Headed Baby" by Driftin 5, "Going Going Gone" by Phil Wainman, "I Think I'm A Man" by Chopper, "Hey Hey Bunny" by Los Gatos Negros, "Billy Sunshine" by Judi Scott, "Hip Hip Hurray" by The Snap Shots, and "No No No" by Ola & The Janglers. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousNew Orleans Funk – The Original Sound Of Funk Vol 3 – Two-Way-Pocky-Way, Gumbo Ya Ya & The Mardi Gras Mambo ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The cover image looks old-timey, but the grooves on the set are totally modern – a wealth of wonderful funky numbers from the New Orleans scene of the 60s and 70s – just the kind of gems that made us love the previous two volumes in this series! We might well argue that this third collection is the coolest of the bunch – as it features some more obscure, overlooked gems from the Crescent City – filled with the kind of raw rhythms and driving grooves that always make Nola soul tracks so great! There's no hoke here at all – no Mardi Gras cliches nor pandering for the tourists – and instead, this stuff is at the cusp of the best bursting moment of pride and power for New Orleans – the kind of cuts cut at a time when the city was really discovering how great it could be. As with all Soul Jazz sets, the notes and package really live up to the quality of the music – and the set's overflowing with greatness, in a batch of 18 tracks that includes "What You Want" by Lee Dorsey & The Meters, "Got A Get My Baby Back Home" by Tony Owens, "Fairchild" by Willie West, "Go To The Mardi Gras" by Professor Longhair, "Trouble With My Lover" by Betty Harris, "Omar Khayyam" by The Rubaiyats, "Gossip Gossip" by Diamond Joe, "Fagged Out" by The Deacons, "The Book" by Eldridge Holmes, "We The People" by Allen Toussaint, "Jockey Ride (parts 1 & 2)" by The Explosions, and "Do It Fluid" by The Dirty Dozen Brass Band.

✨✧ VariousSouth Side Story Vol 23 (2014 Record Store Day Release) ... CD
Numero, 1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great take on the East Side Story series of soul music compilations from the west coast – that famous less-than-legit collection that featured the kind of killer cuts that really made the Chicano soul scene great! Numero offer their own version of that format, by putting together their own batch of Chicago soul gems – both rare singles, and the kind of unissued tracks you'll find on their other compilations – but which you'd never see in the original series! The work is great – very laidback on the group soul numbers, but with a few harder edges too – and titles include "This Is The Ending Of Our Love" by The Si-Berians, "That's The Kind Of Love" by The Mystics, "I'll Get You Back" by Renaldo Domino, "It Ain't Fair" by Calvin Harris, "Gotta Get Through To You" by Final Solution, "Puppet On A String" by Young Souls, "You Hurt Me" by Donnell Pitmann, "Blowing With The Wind" by Intentions, and "I Don't Wanna Be Late" by The Notations.

✨✧ VariousWheedle's Groove – Seattle's Finest In Funk & Soul 1965-75 ... CD
Light In The Attic, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Funk from Seattle? Hardly seems likely – but prepare to be amazed! The funky reissuers at Light In The Attic, in collaboration with Mr Supreme, have unearthed a treasure trove of rare singles and groovers for the set – all obscure local recordings from the Emerald City scene, most of which never made it past the Pacific Northwest to the national charts. Back in the day, Seattle was a real cross-cultural hotbed – filled with folks who'd picked up and moved out from points east, settling in the Central District, working for Boeing, and reveling in the freedom of the new city to find their own groove. This set does a great job of documenting the flowering of eastern-styled funk in Seattle's growing scene of the late 60s – and features a range of tracks that run from deep funk to hard soul, sock-boogaloo, and even a bit of hard-handed piano jazz! The package features a great set of notes on the music, and a long set list that includes "Louie Louie" by The Topics, "Brighter Tomorrow" by Soul Swingers, "This Is Me" by Cookin Bag, "Bold Soul Sister Bold Soul Brother" by Black On White Affair, "Cissy Strut" by Johnny Lewis Trio, "Stop Losing Your Chances" by Cold Bold & Together, "I Just Want To Be" by Robbie Hill, "Wheedle's Groove" by Annakonda, "Hey Jude" by Overton Berry Trio, and "A Little Love Affair" by Patrinell Staten. CD
